SwimWest Swim School History
Founded in 1990, SwimWest Swim School offers one of the industry’s most dynamic swim curriculums in Dane County, and we are one of only three swim schools in Wisconsin approved by the United Swim School Association.
With our systematic approach to water education, we’re able to track and acknowledge our students’ progress at each stage of development, offering the encouragement and training they need to be safe and successful. We are proud to have now trained over 100,000 students!
But just as important as what we teach is what we believe.
At SwimWest, our philosophy is to provide all children, regardless of age, race, or special needs, the best aquatic experience, to teach the necessary skills to be safer in the water, to nurture a love of swimming, and to educate parents about water safety and the aquatic learning process.
Through it all, we work to develop each child’s self-esteem and feel that creating happy swimmers is a gift that will last a lifetime.
Not only are we the only local swim school certified and approved by the elite United States Swim School Association, we also are involved with the World Aquatic Baby Congress, the Safer Three program, and the Safe Kids Coalition.
